Best Single Pin Bow Sight for Hunting

Best Single Pin Bow Sight for HuntingWith all the different sights that are available it can be over whelming trying to find the right one for you. I know, before I got my Hogg Father it took me months of researching different sights that I was interested in. I even bought a few just to find out it wasn't what I wanted. To save you some time I have come up with 5 of best single pin bow sights for hunting.

These sights are made by some of the top names in the archery industry so you know you are getting very high quality equipment. One of the things that gets overlooked when archers buy a $1000 bow is that they put cheater low quality accessories on it. Everything that you put on your bow is just as important as the bow itself. Ya, you might pay a little more money up front but in the end you will be much better off.

Adjustability of it is one of the features I look for the most. I want a sight that I can adjust the way I want it. Which means a good second and third axis adjustment. The need to be simple enough to get set up and shooting. I want to be able to trust that it will not move unless I move it.

One of the coolest and most innovative features of this sight is the react technology. What that means is that you can shoot from just 20 yards and 30 yards, make an adjustment and you will be good out to 100 yards. On most sights you have to shoot 20 and 60 to find the right tape. I know for me a few years ago shooting 60 yards accurately was out of the question. I did buy the React Pro 5 and it worked great, I just don't like multiple pins though. But it did help me feel more comfortable shooting at 60.

The Ascent Verdict has a PhotoChromatic lighting system. What the does is automatically adjusts the pin brightness based on the available lighting in the environment. The wheel adjustment is easy to use and it has a 45 degree back facing yardage tape so you don't have to look around your bow to see where your pin is set. The bubble level can be adjusted to fit inside the top of the ring so it is further away from your pin.

The Carbon Pro has what Axcel calls, Accu-Clicks. What this allows you to do is set these little blocks on your yardage tape at whatever yardage you want so that when you move your pin to that distance it will click into that block when you get to it. So you can move your sight to a certain yardage without even looking at it. It also has a carbon dovetail to cut some weight. I love shooting dove tails. It allows me to get the pin farther away from the riser allowing me to see it better.

One of the biggest things I like about the HHA King Pin is that you can change out the yardage wheel for another. This allows you to have one sight set up for different arrow weights. Just change out the wheel when you change to a different arrow. I like this because I always change between Easton FMJs and Easton Axis arrows and there is a big weight difference between the two. It has a blind 20 so no matter where your pin is set you can always move you sight back to 20 without even looking at it. The King Pin also has what they call a Rheostat. This is a feature on the housing that allows you to choose how much light is getting to the pin. Pin to bright? Close the Rheostat. Pin not bright enough? Open it. I have shot HHA before and they have some of the brightest pins I have shot. Never needed a sight light.

Spot Hoggs are built like a tank. You will never have to worry about braking them. The Fast Eddie has micro adjust second and third axis along with micro adjust tool-less windage and elevation adjustments. It has a 6" dovetail so you can get the housing where you want it to match your peep. It has the HRD technology which does make it a little bit heavier than most sights but personally I like a little heavier sight.
